  1. Hi Heidi !! Three great shots for the theme!! Looks like a lovely walk down the avenue of trees in the first shot. Great symbolic headstone in the second shot, there has been so much religious persecution over the centuries. Wow, those headstones in the third shot are really old!!

  3. Hi, Heidi. Love the green of the first shot, very pretty. The second one is my favorite, with the cut out of the dove and the plants beside. The third is very unique, such ancient stones still there. Nicely captured.

  4. Three good shots. The third is very interesting and I am sure there are plenty of tales to tell about those Herzogs.

  6. I'm so sorry for being so late commenting, Heidi. I love them all, but my favorite is the second shot. The date of 1210 just jumped right out at me.

    Again, I apologize for being so late.

  8. Heidi, that second shot is my favorite. What a tale of horror behind it, though.
